"The Taliban have returned to an all-out offensive on the battlefield [...] They accuse the US of not upholding its end of the deal signed in February, which promised the release of up to 5,000 Taliban prisoners held by the Afghan government in a matter of 10 days, as a prelude to direct talks between the two Afghan sides on a cease-fire and power-sharing."

Re: NEW: Russia secretly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops
Ofcourse they did this, what goes around comes around.

I don't blame Russia for doing this and I was part of ISAF in 2009 and it scarred me for life.

This thread is a typical example of Americans pushing people around and screaming 'murder' when shoved back, as you always do.

Re: NEW: Russia secretly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops
they didn't. the USA funded the Mujahideen, who were the enemies of the Taliban. then they funded the Northern Alliance, who were also the enemies of the Taliban! check the links you posted!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33385990


"Ahmed Rashid states that the US indirectly supported the Taliban through its ally in Pakistan between 1994 and 1996 because Washington viewed the Taliban as anti-Iranian, anti-Shia and pro-Western. For example, it made no comment when the Taliban captured Herat in 1995, and expelled thousands of girls from schools.
At this early stage, the then Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs, Robin Raphel, strongly supported efforts to engage with the Taliban. She also supported a Unocal-led, Taliban-supported pipeline project on trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan in April and August 1996. She was one of the first senior American officials to meet personally with Taliban, including its leader, Mohammed Omar. She called on the international community to "engage the Taliban." Raphel was instrumental in coordinating the State Department's establishment of diplomatic relations with the Taliban shortly after its takeover of Kabul. She welcomed their taking of Kabul in September 1996 as a "positive step". Her consistent support for the Taliban from its earliest days earned her the sobriquet "Lady Taliban" and "Godmother to the Taliban" in some circles."

so like that says, USA funded Pakistan. Pakistan funded the Taliban. USA funded the Mujahideen not the Taliban.

Timeline:

-The invasion of Afghanistan was started by Bush in 2001.

-By 2008, Bush had deployed about 50,000 more US troops to Afghanistan. Barack Obama succeeded Bush the following year, when about 68,000 US troops had been deployed in the country.

-By the end of 2009, Obama sent another 30,000 to fight al-Qaeda and the Taliban.

-By 2010 (Obama administration), the number of US soldiers had swollen to almost 100,000, while the overall number of foreign troops in Afghanistan stood at 150,000.

-By 2017 (Trump administration), the US troops' level had declined to about 8,400.

-April 27th, 2020 (source NBC news): "President Donald Trump has pushed his military and national security advisers in recent days to pull all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan"

Re: NEW: Russia secretly paid Taliban-linked militants bounty money to kill American troops
How is this surprising?

We sent a lot of Russians into the next world in Afghanistan during their time there, specifically, with our Stinger missiles.

And, yeah, we bombed, in essence, their Delta Force in Syria.

So, war is hell.

We have to make the cost of killing our boys so high to them, that they become unwilling to pay it.

I talked with a IDF guy years ago, he was telling me about the hostage taking in Lebanon in the 80’s, where we had Americans there for years,

He said, when the Russians got their diplomats taken, they would find the friends and family of the hostage takers (everybody knows who all the real players are there) kill them and mutilate them, and leave them at the doorsteps of the power players.

Their diplomats would get released.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78137357


Putin has been doing this for nearly 20 years. Bush knew about it - sent more troops. Obama knew about it - sent even more troops. Trump learns of it, never liked us being there to begin with and pulls troops out.

And you believe this why? Love the first two words 'Russia reportedly'. This comes from interrogated terrorists by our intel services. No doubt, possibly true, but I'm thinking more likely US Intel propaganda to stir the Russian narrative pot some more. Until Brennan and Clapper are brought down and all their lackey's they installed are driven out, I'll suspect these agencies motives. hf
